It’s the year of Quinoa!
By Stephanie Nehme
So7i W Sari3 Dietitian
Quinoa
• The United Nations (UN) has declared 2013 as the
International Year of the Quinoa (IYQ).
• Objective: To raise awareness of how quinoa can provide
nutritional benefits, increase food security, and help
eradicate poverty around the world.
• Additionally, it can easily adapt to different ecologies,
making it easy to grow in all forms of weather and land
conditions.
Quinoa
• Quinoa is considered a superfood.
• Protein content is very high (14% by mass), yet not as high as
most beans and legumes.
• Quinoa's protein content per 100 calories is higher than brown
rice, potatoes, barley and millet, but is less than wild rice and
oats.
• Nutritional evaluations of quinoa indicate that it is a source of
complete protein. Furthermore, it is a good source of dietary
fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron.
• Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest.
Quinoa
Surprisingly, because of
all these characteristics,
quinoa is being
considered a possible
crop in NASA's
Controlled Ecological
Life Support System for
long-duration human
occupied spaceflights.
Quinoa
HOWEVER:
• Quinoa was important to the diet of pre-
Columbian Andean civilizations.
• It has become increasingly popular in the
United States, Europe, China and Japan where
the crop is not typically grown, increasing crop
value.
• It is NOT a Lebanese staple food.
